What You Do: Give each student a small piece of paper and a pen to write a prayer. Tell the
class to prayerfully think about what they can bring to King Jesus
this year. (Spend a few minutes praying and asking God to show the
class what they can bring to Jesus.) Begin a sentence with,
"Because Jesus is the King of my life, I
will_________________." Then have the students fill in the blank.
Have them write 3-4 sentences whereby they fill in the blank. (For
example, "Because Jesus is the King of my life, I will show
kindness to my enemies." or, "Because Jesus is the King
of my life, I will spend more time reading his word.")
Make Epiphany Boxes to store
Decorate a small box, cardboard or tin, such as an Altoid or International Coffee
tin, with paint, decorative paper, pens, markers, and various other
items such as small beads, jewels, gold cord, etc.
Place the prayers into the box
and store it in a prominent place in your bedroom to remember the gift
that you will bring to Jesus this year.
Pray: "Dear Jesus,
thank you for coming to earth as a baby and becoming a man. Thank you
for going to the cross to be the sacrifice to make me right with
God. Help me this New Year to be a living sacrifice for you in all the
things that I say and do. May the words of my mouth and the
meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my Rock
and my Redeemer. Amen."
